FOREST FIRE PREVENTION IS EVERYBODY'S 

BUSINESS 

New Hampshire faces a continuing challenge in its 
forest fire problem — 97 percent of all our forest fires 
being man-caused and preventable — a serious indict- 
ment of interest in our own welfare and that of our 
neighbor. Both the State and the towns are striving 
diligently to effectively meet the challenge through 
education of the public to the threat fire presents to our 
woodlands; by maintaining a well trained corps of 
wardens and deputy wardens in every community and 
by providing ample opportunity for all who wish to 
dispose of unwanted waste materials. Careless and per- 
verseness, however, continue to be the big hurdles. 

Thoughtlessly discarded lighted cigars, cigarettes and 
matches from moving vehicles, by hikers, hunters and 
fishermen; careless burning of debris during hazardous 
periods in dangerous locations; illegal burning; improp- 
erly extinguished debris, camp and cook fires — all 
result in serious loss of property disruption of industry 
and farm work and unnecessary expenditure of town 
and state funds. 

To meet the challenge successfully, the state, your 
community and your local forest fire warden need your 
thoughtful and cooperative effort — The rules are 
simple. 

1. Don't burn at home — use your town dump and 
avoid all fire problems. 

2. If you do burn, be sure to secure a written per- 
mit from your local forest fire warden when the 
ground is not covered with snow. Permits are re- 
quired for open debris fires, home incinerators, 
outdoor fire places and camp fires. Your warden 
is instructed to permit burning if weather condi- 
tions, site and type of burning are safe. 



47 

3. Be sure that all lighted materials — cigars, ciga- 
rettes and matches — are completely out before 
discarding them. Use ash trays in automobiles. 

4. Make certain that your debris, camp and cook 
fires are completely out before leaving them. 

5. Insist that others be careful and comply with 
burning requirements. 

6. Call the warden promptly when fire is detected 
and aid him to extinguish it. 

REMEMBER — the fire you prevent might be the one 
which could burn your property. 

REMEMBER — Forest Fire Prevention is Everybody's 
Business and our Most Important Undertaking.

REPORT OF THE TOWN PLANNING BOARD 



The Town of Northfield Planning Board, after sev- 
eral years of quiet existence, has been" very active dur- 
ing the latter part of the year 1957. 

The Board held its first meeting of the year on Sep- 
tember 2 and organized with Michael Buczynski as 
chairman and Wilbur Heath as secretary. Regular 
monthly meetings have been held since that date with 
100% attendance at the majority of the meetings. Rec- 
ognizing that town planning is a many-sided subject, 
the board moved slowly, but the members feel that 
real progress has been made. The New Hampshire 
Planning and Development Commission has been most 
helpful in furnishing advice and literature on the sub- 
ject of town planning. 

That the Board might be more fully informed and 
thereby better serve the community, two members, 
Chairman Buczynski and Mrs. Weldon Thompson, at- 
tended, at their own expense, a seminar on town plan- 
ning. This course, which was held in Concord and was 
sponsored jointly by the University of New Hampshire, 
the New Hampshire Planning and Development Com- 
mission and the New Hampshire Planning and Zoning 
Association, presented lecturers and speakers, who are 
experts in the various aspects of town planning. The 
board members, who attended, found the meetings 
stimulating and feel that many of the ideas presented 
could well be applied to this community. 

On November 7, the board held an open meeting 
at which Mr. Charles Crangle, of the New Hampshire 
Planning and Development Commission spoke to a 
small audience. Mr. Crangle drew from his broad ex- 
perience as a town planner giving many helpful hints 



49 

on ways in which good planning could make North- 
field a better town to live in. The board feels indebted 
to the New Hampshire Planning and Development 
Commission for the assistance and cooperation received. 

During a discussion period which followed this meet- 
ing, the question of the location of the new limited 
access highway, which state and federal authorities are 
to build through the town was brought up. Some doubts 
and fears of the effects of such a highway were expressed 
and a resolution containing the sentiment of the meet- 
ing was prepared and presented to the State Depart- 
ment of Public Works and Highways. As a result the 
department suggested a meeting with the board and the 
selectmen at which any differences could be explained 
and ironed out. This meeting was held on December 
30, at the office of the selectmen. Messrs. Whitaker, 
Chase, Brunei and Sleeper of the Department of Public 
Works and Highways were present. By means of maps, 
aerial photographs and verbal explanations, they set at 
rest many of the objections and misconceptions which 
had been expressed. The Planning Board appreciates 
very much courtesy and cooperation of the Department 
of Public Works and Highways in this matter. The 
Board feels that the building of this new highway will 
be of great benefit to the town but that it will also 
present many problems which can be solved only by 
good town planning. 

As a beginning, the board is requesting that the town, 
at the annual meeting this year, appropriate funds for 
an existing land use study. Such a survey would pro- 
vide the information necessary for planning the future 
growth and development of the town and for the ex- 
tension of the existing services and utilities as needed. 
It would also provide a basis for the preparation of a 
zoning ordinance when such action becomes necessary. 



50 



The board, in closing, wishes to express their appre- 
ciation to the Board of Selectmen for their interest and 
cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted,

TILTON-NORTHFIELD RECREATION 
COUNCIL 



The existence of a Recreational Program in our com- 
munities can be directly traced to a request from young 
people in our towns that more constructive programs 
be available for leisure time activity. Many voters in 
Northfield will remember when two high school seniors 
appeared at town meeting and pointed to the limited 
opportunities for wholesome pursuits in our two towns. 

Investigation showed that a vast majority of towns 
tbe size of ours were already providing constructive 
recreational programs and that many communities con- 
siderably smaller than ours were providing more recrea- 
tional facilities for their youngsters than we were. 

A review of two previous attempts to start recreation- 
al programs in Tilton-Northfield indicates they probab- 
ly failed because of dependence on volunteer super- 
vision and extremely limited activity. The present pro- 
gram was established under a paid supervisor and in- 
cludes many more and different activities than in pre- 
ceding attempts. We are now beginning our third year 
of existence. 

It was felt that this program could best be started on 
a part-time basis. It was believed wise to ask for a mini- 
mum amount of financial support until the demands of 
a recreational program could be established and the 
potential of such a program could be thoroughly ex- 
plored. The fact that the requested appropriation this 
year is larger than in the past two years indicates the 
belief of a majority that a much more effective program 
could be attained if the services of a full-time super- 
visor were made available for even more varied activi- 
ties. The additional appropriation would be a major 
step toward the realization of the goal of a full-time rec- 
reational program for our communities. 



52 

A review of this past year's accomplishments indicates 
a greatly improved swimming program. The Recrea- 
tion Council hired a school bus so that youngsters could 
be taken to Northfield Pond live days a week during 
the summer months. Previously there were only three 
days a week of swimming. This past year the Recrea- 
tion Council paid for a Red Cross training course for 
our two water front supervisors so that these people 
were not only trained life savers but instructed the 
children in swimming and water safety. 

Through the cooperation of the American Legion, 
which conducted the activity, a firearm safety program 
has been inaugurated. This has been greeted with the 
greatest enthusiasm on the part of the young people. 
The sizes of the groups have had to be limited because 
of the general appeal of this activity. 

The Council has continued to support programs of 
little league baseball, boxing, badminton, shuffle board, 
ping pong, square dancing and social activities. Our 
impression is that these programs have operated more 
successfully than in the past. Our director, Kim Perkins 
seems to be showing an ever growing ability to work 
with youngsters. 

An anticipated winter of skating has not materialized 
as of the first part of February because of unfavorable 
ice conditions. Arrangements are now being made for 
week end skiing on some of our local slopes. 

With the interest and support of the people of our 
communities our recreation program can not only con- 
tinue but can be developed into a constructive experi- 
ence for our young people.

There were 137 new and 295 repeat cases that were 
admitted to the nursing service and 45 new and 184 
repeat cases under health service. 

Thirty trips were made transporting patients to 
clinics, hospitals, and specialists. 

Toxoid clinics in cooperation with the State Board 
of Health were held in September, October, November 
and December. Dr. Archie Grevior and Dr. Frank Rob- 
inson alternated as attending physicians at the clinics. 
Assistants were Mrs. Willa Downar R.N., Mrs. Margery 
Robert, Mrs. Lurline McCook R.N., Mrs. Mona Hill 
R.N., Mrs. Ruby Edwards, and Mrs. Lois Caveney. The 
last two clinics were poorly attended due to the many 
children having measles, mumps and whooping cough. 
A total of 90 toxoids and 12 vaccinations were given. 

The district nurse appreciated the privilege of using 
the modern and conveniently located American Legion 
Hall for these clinics. 



62 

Mrs. Lurline McCook, R.N., substituted for the 
district nurse while she had her vacation. 

The nurse assisted Mrs. Kay Hewitt, R.N. , the school 
nurse, in buying, wrapping and distributing gifts to 
children of the towns of Tilton and Northfield at Christ- 
mas time. Money and gifts were generously given by 
the Rotary, Business and Professional Women's Club, 
the teachers of both schools and individuals. 

About 30 were remembered by money or a Christmas 
dinner by the American Legion, Salvation Army, the 
Elks, Odd Fellows, the St. Anne's Society and the 
Church of the Assumption. 

You are reminded that the nurse has office hours 
from 3 to 4 p.m. and is in the office 8:30 to 9 a.m. Office 
telephone number 241 and home number 228. 

At this time please accept my sincere thanks for the 
cooperation, friendliness and sincere good will given 
me by the Doctors, District Nursing Board, and the 
citizens of Tilton and Northfield. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALICE FRENCH, R.N.

REPORT OF 
TILTON-NORTHFIELD SCHOOL BOARD 

We have held several long meetings to discuss the 
1958-59 school budget. We have postponed many items 
of equipment and renovations to future years in order 
to keep tax rate at the lowest point possible and still 
maintain the excellent school system that our towns 
have enjoyed. 

We believe that we should continue the school light- 
ing improvement program by the installation of modern 
lighting for the second floor of the high school and the 
gymnasium. The district has purchased the fixtures for 
the latter from the present budget. 

Our proposed budget for 1958-59 shows practically 
the same amounts as last year with a few exceptions. 
The only real increase is for principals' and teachers' 
salaries, this amount being necessary for securing and 
retaining our best teachers and maintaining a salary 
schedule. Repairs and replacements have been reduced 
from $16,715.00 to $6,200.00. Reduction of state aid 
by approximately five thousand dollars increased the 
school tax rate. 

The people of the two towns will be very pleased 
to have the playing surface of Veterans' Memorial Field 
completed and in use. The new backstop will probably 
last twenty-five years. 

We used the funds provided by the people for the 
new oil burner, painting of six rooms, renovations of 
ceilings, painting the fire escape, new lighting for the 
first floor of the high school, hard surfacing, and minor 
improvements. 

May we thank the Journal-Transcript for its excellent 
policy of developing the annual and permanent funds 
for the annual award of scholarships to pupils of Frank- 
lin and Tilton-Northfield. We thank all individuals 
who have contributed and the families who have auth- 
orized memorials for their departed loved ones. 



78 

We extend our appreciation for the funds contrib- 
uted by the veterans, the clubs and organizations, and 
individuals for the completion of Veterans' Memorial 
Field. We thank all the individuals who contributed 
personal labor and time. 

The appreciation of the district goes to the Special 
Committee of Mr. Brackett Hill, Chairman, Mr. Ernest 
Decato and Mr. Chester Davidson, who worked with the 
Board in the naming of the new school. 

The Parent-Teacher Association and the Room 
Mothers have done outstanding work annually in mak- 
ing the schools better by their active support and co- 
operation. 

We wish to express our appreciation to the organiza- 
tions and individuals who have provided scholarships 
and prizes for our pupils, and those who have contrib- 
uted special gifts during the year. 

Our work is to establish policies for the schools that 
will continually improve them, and to spend econom- 
ically and wisely the money provided by you. We have 
tried our best to see that every dollar receives a dollar 
return in value, and work to save money by competi- 
tive bids. 

We are your chosen representatives to operate the 
schools for the best interests of the children and the 
community. We welcome your constructive suggestions 
at any time for mutual school advancement. 

Respectfully submitted,

VETERANS' MEMORIAL ATHLETIC FIELD 



More than three years ago a project was started to 
build an athletic field in the area directly behind the 
high school. A group of interested persons investigated 
means of raising money with which to complete the 
project and found that funds which had been set aside 
for a "Welcome Home" to returning veterans were 
available. Various organizations, which had contributed, 
were contacted and all agreed to use this fund for the 
completion of the project in conjunction with funds 
available from the school district. 

Work was begun and time, materials, equipment and 
construction skill was generously contributed by many 
companies, organizations, and individuals and the proj- 
ect was completed last fall, producing one of the best 
athletic fields in this section of the state. 

The field was dedicated during the past year and 
given the name "Tilton-Northfield Veterans' Memorial 
Field" in memory of our service men. 

Because of the large number of individuals, com- 
panies and organizations who have contributed greatly 
to this project, it is impossible to thank each individual- 
ly but I wish to extend my appreciation to everyone 
who in any way contributed to the completion of this 
worthwhile project. From this generous response we 
now have facilities for our programs of physical educa- 
tion and athletics in our schools and a place for public 
use by our townspeople.

Veterans' Memorial Field Committee

Appreciation 

May I express my appreciation to the members 
of the School Board, Selectmen, principals, helping 
teacher, teachers, office workers, custodians, bus opera- 
tors, cafeteria workers, playground workers, and the 
Parent-Teacher Association for all their cooperation 
and assistance during the past year. The joint-communi- 
ty of Tilton and Northfield have backed the schools 
and the School Board. It is apparent that the people 
want the best schools for their children and will support 
every effort to improve the schools, as needed, to main- 
tain democracy and our system of American freedom. 

Cordially yours, 

GORDON L. FOX, 

Supt. of Schools
